This is Boe-Joseph. This is the fellow that started it all for us. He was a lilac point that our Gamma got when she was in high school (in the early 1970's). He always made sure to check her boyfriends and let her know which ones were loosers. When Gamma went away to college Boe decided that he was MAD MAD MAD at her. He would not even give her the time of way so he bonded with Gamma's Mom.
When Gamma had baby-Meowmy, Boe found and even more manipulative way of getting back at Gamma. Whenever they would come to visit (Boe lived in NJ and Meowmy lived in Maine as a little girl) Boe decided he really really liked little Meowmy. She was only like 3 years old but Boe totally adopted her as his pet. He slept with her, and even licked her face like Skeezix does to Mr. TF! Meowmy wanted Boe to come live with her soooooooo badly.
Boe lived a long and happy life until he was 17. Then his kidneys shutted down and one of our VET men (the owner of the practice) had to help him to the Bridge. Can you believe we have the same VET man as Boe? Well, our main VET is the owner's son but still we've seen him too. Because Meowmy loved Boe so much Gamma's Mom gave Meowmy Boe's carrier with his pillow and fur still in it. Meowmy cried so hard, this was her first loss of a loved one. For the next many years as her candle-blow-out birthday she wished that he could come back to this world. Now Meowmy knows he's happier at the Bridge and waiting for her there.
Fast forward 15-20 years later and Meowmy FINALLY got a meezer in her life again. Me!!! Oh, and Boe's carrier is still used for Gamma's kitties :). He was an amazing cat that will never ever be forgotten.
